Ness in Gophers' lineup, Matson still out

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Gophers game day Updated: March 11, 2011 - 6:08 PM

Gophers' line for Alaska Anchorage:

1st/ Mike Hoeffel-Nick Bjugstad-Nick Larson ... Big line which goes 6-2, 6-4, 6-1. Bjugstad has been especially hot lately with three goals last weekend.

2nd/ Jacob Cepis-Erik Haula-Jake Hansen ... Line was quiet last weekend. Cepis' streak of a goal in five games in a row was stopped. Maybe he will start another tonight.

3rd/ Nate Condon-Pat White-Jay Barriball ... White is chipping in with points in stretch. Barriball had four assists last weekend

4th/ Tom Serratore-Nico Sacchetti-Joe Miller ... Energy line. Plays with a lot of jump and in Serratore's case some pop. He will hit people


1st/ Seth Helgeson-Cade Fairchild

2nd/ Aaron Ness-Mark Alt ... Gophers need Ness' puck-moving ability, had some trouble getting puck out of own zoned last weekend without him

3rd/ Kevin Wehrs-Justin Holl

Goalie: Kent Patterson
